Imperial China, Mysterious Tibet & The Yangtze River

Few travelers have experienced the wonders of China’s western region, from Chengdu, home of the majestic giant panda, to the mysterious mountain kingdom of Tibet, the “Roof of the World.” This Vantage-exclusive adventure is your opportunity to witness up close the undiscovered side of this dynamic country — filled with sprawling landscapes, ancient cities, and quaint villages — as only a small group allows.

Beijing, China

Experience the rich history, vibrant culture and modern skyline of Beijing

Three Gorges Dam

See the Three Gorges Dam, an engineering marvel that has transformed the region around it. More than a million people were displaced (and hundreds of towns and villages were flooded) to create the world’s largest hydroelectric project. You’ll experience it firsthand.

Giant Pandas

Meet the beloved residents of a protected sanctuary in Chengdu. Head to the outskirts of Chengdu to meet China's famous Giant Pandas at one of the world’s top panda sanctuaries. The work of this passionate organization has helped bring the beloved bear back from the brink of extinction.

The Century Legend

The Century Legend features cutting-edge engine technology for lower vibration and noise on board, as well as high-tech "paint-free" environmentally friendly materials and furniture. The 465-foot-long ship boasts a seven-floor-high Grand Atrium lobby for unparalleled views of the Yangtze, an 8,500 sq. ft. restaurant, a 2,000 sq. ft. pool area, 150-seat HD theater, 12-foot-high multifunction lounge, two karaoke lounges, video on demand, ship-wide Wi-Fi, and local entertainment on board.

Shangri-La Hotel, Xi'an

Kick back and relax in the lap of luxury when you stay at the Shangri-La Hotel Xian. Catering to your every need, this Deluxe hotel features an indoor swimming pool, a health club with spa services, three restaurants offering a choice of Cantonese, Japanese and European cuisines, and impeccable service courtesy of first-class personnel.
